Whether you are shopping for Christmas, birthdays, valentines, Easter, graduation, or some other occasion, you can never go wrong getting a gift card for your brother. After dating a teenage boy for five years and buying gift cards for friends and my older brother, I know a lot about what it is that guys want. Here are the top 5 places that you should get gift cards for your brother this year.
1- Game Store
Almost every guy is addicted to some type of video game. By getting him a gift card to a game store like EB Games you will be allowing him to buy new games for his system, or even a new system if he uses the gift card along with some other money. Guys love getting the new games so that they can play with their friends, so he would be ecstatic to get a gift card to the game store this year.
2- Visa Card
If you want to give your brother some type of money, but don’t want to just hand him cash, you can always get him a visa card. You simply choose the amount that you would like to get, and buy it- then he can use it anywhere he wants until the amount is spent. No, this isn’t a regular credit card, it’s basically a gift card but it can be spent anywhere. Your brother will love it!
3- Gas Card (Gas Station)
Although it may not seem like the most flattering or exciting gift, you’d be surprised how many guys love getting gas cards, especially if they are 16 or older. Once you start driving, the price of gas tends to take a toll on your bank account, if you even have one, and gas cards are always appreciated.
4- Dick’s Sporting Goods
Any guy can find something to buy at Dick’s Sporting Goods. They offer such a variety of items, from hunting and fishing equipment to sporting equipment, to work-out accessories. Give your brother a gift card to this store and he will be thankful and excited to start spending.
5- Bass Pro Shops
Every guy can find something at Bass Pro Shops. I would say buy him something for hunting or fishing, but I have never quite understood any of that and my guys love it- so by buying your brother a gift card to his favorite store, it makes him feel like a kid in a toy store.
You can never go wrong by getting your brother a gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods or Bass Pro Shops. At either one of these places, they will be able to buy everything from hunting and fishing equipment to sporting equipment. Your brother will love a gift card to either of these places, so this is what I would recommend most.
